30 Week Bumpdate

May 1, 2018

Little man you will be here next month!!!! We are finally in the 30’s for weeks, and only have seven weeks left until you are here! I can’t believe we are finally to this point. If we weren’t delivering early, we would have ten weeks left, which still seems crazy.

This last week with you has been really good. We went in on Wednesday for our non-stress test, and got to try the 3D ultrasound again. You were SO much more cooperative than Monday! And you are so cute. You look a lot like your dad, and also so much like Carter. There were a couple shots we got where you looked just like him, and all i could do was lay there and cry. Your non-stress tests have all gone really well so far. You pass with flying colors, and are also super active during them! It’s fun because I get to feel you move, but during that time your dad can see and hear your movements! I really love that we get to do a non-stress test every week. It’s so reassuring.

I got sick last week, and it still hasn’t quite gone away yet, so we’ve just been resting a lot. You love it when I lay down and am relaxed, so you have been really active while I’ve been sick, which is just more reassuring than anything. My goal is just to get back to feeling better so I can take good care of you, but if resting also means you move more, then I’ll do it! I’ve had a lot of bland food lately, so you were pretty excited last night to have some ice cream.

Last week I think I wrote that my stressful dreams were getting better and my night sweats had gone away, but you just were teasing me!! They came back the next day in full force and haven’t stopped. That’s probably my least favorite thing of this pregnancy. I just feel so gross when I wake up! But that’s okay. It means I have all the hormones which are good for you! Sleep is good besides that though. I’m sleeping super well besides waking up to go to the bathroom! And I love that it has been nice and warm outside lately because it gives me a reason to wake up earlier!

Your dad turns 30 on Friday, which seems a little crazy to me! Good thing you’re on your way here...I think he’s starting to feel old!

We can’t wait for you to be here. Keep growing!! We love you!!
